Ultraviolet - R.J. Anderson Full review at http://thebookshelfgargoyle.wordpress.com/2012/10/01/mind-your-own-delusions-ya-fiction-mixing-mental-health-and-fantasy-themes/

This is a very well constructed YA title mixing science fiction and mental health themes with a bit of romance thrown in. The premise - a girl residing in a psychiatric facility and under suspicion in the disappearance of a classmate - was immediately intriguing to me, but the science fiction twist that occurs about two-thirds of the way into the book knocked me for six.

Initially the twist felt uncomfortable, as if it hadn't been thought through by the author, but on finishing the book I was left with the feeling that this was a very satisfying read.

Highly recommended.
